nba feet 2011 finals game 2 recap summary NBA Feet: 2011 Finals   Game 2 Recap

When your star player – a shooter for that matter – tears a tendon on one of his fingers, you might as well wave the white flag and call it a series, no? The Dallas Mavericks,down 15 with just over 6 minutes of play remaining, stormed back in the fourth quarter with a 20-2 run using timely buckets and ironclad defense. Led by Dirk Nowitzki, who claimed the torn tendon didn’t bother him, scored Dallas’ final nine points; a heady fast break lay-up, a tie-breaking three-pointer with Jordan-esque clutchness, and a lefty lay-up thanks to Chris Bosh’s overzealous defense of the fadeaway sealed the deal and sent the series back to Texas with all the momentum on the Mavericks’ side. For Game 2 not much changed in terms of sneakers; Dirk did his thing with the Nike Hyperdunk 2010 and Jason Terry rocked the Zig Slash (and gave ‘em away to a lucky fan after the game). On Miami’s side, LeBron and Wade rocked their respective PEs of the LeBron 8 P.S. and Jordan Fly Wade, and Mike Bibby wore the Air Jordan 2011 Quick Fuse for the second straight game. With the series guaranteed to go at least five games, you know Sneaker News will keep you on top of all of the NBA Feet action, so check out the Game 2 recap after the jump! via Yahoo!.

In 2006, the Mavericks took Game 1. In 2011, the script was flipped. Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh navigated the Miami Heat to a Game 1 victory on Tuesday night, breaking away in the fourth quarter after a tight 40 minutes of play. LeBron James (LeBron 8 PS Home PE) and Dwyane Wade (Jordan Fly Wade Home PE) combined for 46 points, 19 rebounds, and 11 assists, capping off a great duet with an awe-inspiring alley-oop at the end of the game. Mike Bibby, who has quietly been debuting many Jordan Brand footwear releases, wore a White/Red PE colorway of the Air Jordan 2011 Quick Fuse. Dirk Nowitzki led all scorers 27 points while wearing the Nike Hyperdunk 2010 PE, and Shawn Marion provided great support while wearing the Air Max Fly By.

NBA Feet: 2011 Playoffs – Thunders vs. Mavs Game 5 Recap

May 26th, 2011 by | 13 comments

nba feet 5 25 11 summary NBA Feet: 2011 Playoffs   Thunders vs. Mavs Game 5 Recap

On January 4th, 2000, a billionaire entrepreneur named Mark Cuban purchased the Dallas Mavericks, a struggling franchise entrenched in a blight of perennial losing seasons. With no light at the end of the tunnel,Cuban directed the Mavericks to the NBA Finals in just six years, the first in franchise history, earning a reputation as one of most supportive and dedicated owners in professional sports. At the same time, Cuban has not had a smooth relationship with the NBA front office, as he’s incurred more than $1.5 million in fines for incidents involving referees and league officials, with the most notable of Cuban’s outcries stemming from that 2006 Finals series – one that Tim Donaghy claimed was fixed in favor of Miami Heat.

Since that controversial series, Mark Cuban has wheeled and dealed and continued to spend while sticking his head in nearly every big-name free agent/trade discussion. Amidst criticism from so-called NBA experts and fans from around the league especially after losing to Golden State in the first round of the Playoffs in 2007, Cuban continued to trust and build around his superstar Dirk Nowitzki in an unflinching manner, and his devotion has clearly paid off the Mavericks easily defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games and have earned a second trip to the NBA Finals. Two-time scoring champ Kevin Durant have been sent home early, but the future is as bright as ever for the Thunder, so expect them back in the 2012 Finals mix. A rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals looks to be in the books, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for more 2011 NBA Playoff updates as we approach the Finals! via Yahoo!.
